I'm attempting to run a strategy on GDAX, but am getting the error:

Margin currently not available for BTC-USD

I know I've read somewhere that the account needs to be set to "Cash" but I'm not finding that again. Can someone point me the right direction?

Update Backtest

You could try

SetBrokerageModel(BrokerageName.GDAX, AccountType.Cash)

Update Backtest
